For U.S. employees, a long winter of discontent?

Maybe the unending chill this past winter is to blame. Almost 20% of Americans recently polled by Rasmussen Reports say they’re unhappy at work, and more than 60% say they have considered quitting.

The list of reasons isn’t too surprising. More than half of would-be job quitters say they don’t get paid enough. Thirty-one percent are disappointed about their prospects for advancement. About 25% cite feeling unfulfilled at work; the same percentage say their jobs are too stressful.

What’s keeping them from seeking greener pastures? Fear of losing financial security is holding back 35%, while 16% worry that they don’t have the necessary skills to land a better job.
